Premier League side Chelsea are in advanced talks with Ajax to sign Moroccan winger Hakim Ziyech, Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reported on Wednesday.

According to the report, both sides had agreed a £38m deal and the player will be in Stamford Bridge next summer.

The 26-year-old winger was one of the top targets of coach Frank Lampard in January but Ajax insisted on keeping their star until the summer.

Ziyech; who joined Ajax from FC Twente in the summer of 2016, is under contract with Ajax until 2022.

The Moroccan international winger has scored eight goals and provided 21 assists in 29 matches in all competitions so far this season.
